Grid Community Gathers in Prague

Sep 18, 2012 |

This week, over 400 participants from the European research-computing community – and some of their American partners – came together in one of Europe’s most beloved cities, Prague. On Monday, GlobusEUROPE took over the third floor of the Hotel Clarion Congress, located in Vysocany, a modern section of the city, just 15 minutes away from the historic center of Prague and the famous Prague Castle. The remainder of the week, Tuesday through Friday, is dedicated to the European Grid Infrastructure Technical Forum.

Helix Nebula: from Grid to Cloud and Lessons Learned So Far

Jul 17, 2012 |

European cloud computing is taking off as can be seen in the progress of Helix Nebula. The major pan-European cloud project announced last week that they were moving from the initial proof of concept phase to the start of the two-year pilot phase, which involves expanded proofs of concept and perhaps some additional demand side partners. Just a few months into the project, the participants discuss the challenges of migrating science into the cloud.

In the Wake of the Higgs Boson: Helix Nebula – The Science Cloud

Jul 9, 2012 |

Announced earlier this year, the pan-European cloud computing project, Helix Nebula – the Science Cloud, brings together select IT service providers with leading research institutions, CERN, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL). Representatives from all three centers will take part in a joint keynote session at the ISC Cloud conference, taking place this September in Mannheim, Germany. In this brief Q&A, they share their perspectives on the initiative and provide an outline of what’s to come.
